TikTok ban: YouTube and Instagram Content Creators React!

The move came after the government announced banning 59 Chinese based apps including TikTok and SHAREit. The apps were reported to compromise users private data.

Social media has been buzzing ever since the government put a ban on 59 Chinese based apps in India. The move came after the Ministry of Information and Technology “received many complaints from various sources including several reports about the misuse of mobile apps..for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting user’s data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India”. Owing to this, many content creators shared their opinions on the interim ban on TikTok and other applications.

tag your favourites creator from TikTok so others can follow them here 🙂 I love @themermaidscales (will keep updating this) *We are in the middle of a national crisis. This post is not a criticism on the ban nor does it undermine the security of the country and most importantly, the lives of the Indian soldiers' sacrificed* before saying something truly vile about TikTok creators and while you may have valid reasons for it in your head, think about the collective mental health of people who relied on the app for their livelihood. We preach about kindness but do we really practice it when we need to? There are 30 million active users on the app – singers, makeup artists, dancers, home chefs, stunt performers, let's not generalise all of them. please please please practice empathy. Show them the way, not the middle finger. Please.
